    "No gentlemen were admitted" writes Louisa May Alcott in Little Women to describe the all-female private revue the March sisters perform. And as the novel progresses, one cannot help but wonder if this same sentiment does indeed echo throughout the novel, as male characters are conspicuously absent while all the pivotal parts are played by the women characters.

    • 3 Pages

    When it was written in 1925, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, by Anita Loos was heralded as a tremendous novel. It was seen as cutting edge and insightful, yet somewhat risqué in its portrayal of Lorelei Lee and her escapades. I can see how this may have been thought at that time, seeing as how women were looked at in such a different way then they are currently. The fact that a women with as little know-how as Lorelei can manipulate men the way that she does, leaves no question as to who is the superior

    Throughout The Two Gentlemen of Verona, scenes featuring Lance and his dog, Crab are juxtaposed with (and perhaps reference) interactions between the friends and lovers central to the plot.

So long as he is with his owner, Crab understands that Lance is as loyal an owner as any and will interject himself between Crab and the punishments should the situation ever arise or call for them. In the play text version of The Two Gentlemen of Verona, William Shakespeare emphasizes the idea that human beings are not without fault; they are fallible, but when treated with love, shown confidence, and entrusted with loyalty, it is possible for individuals to achieve realistic and lasting
